CIPR North East PR Book Club

Whether your interest is in strategic planning, CSR, social listening and evaluation, or internal stakeholder management, join us for an evening of conversation with an international expert who will bring over 30 years of experience in communications to our discussion.

In conversation with David Gallagher

A pioneer in modern PR, David has co-authored the recently published book, Truth Be Told – a must-read handbook for every communications professional committed to driving positive change, creating authentic messaging, executing successful campaigns and measuring the true value of those for key audiences.

During the CIPR North East PR Book Club, David will discuss ethics, leadership, and ‘purpose washing’ in communications during a ‘fireside chat’ style conversation with Ramona Slusarczyk, a lecturer in Public Relations at Newcastle University.

Of course, there’ll be plenty of time to answer questions from the audience too. To contribute to the discussion, please email Ramona Slusarczyk [ramona.slusarczyk2@newcastle.ac.uk] your questions for David in advance, and on the night, Ramona will put these to David during the session.

We will then throw the conversation open for a round table discussion and any final questions, aiming to finish around 7pm. The conversation will also be recorded on zoom.
